Mission Statement

The mission of True Passion, through the dedication and loyalty of our association is to serve and assist our diverse community in making a difference.

True Passion will raise money and donations to assist children and families in our communities that reside in the foster care system and those in our community that are less fortunate.

We currently have a goal of adding over 100 new monthly donors to our True Passion Partners. Even a small monthly commitment will help. If everyone does a little, we can make a big difference in the lives of children and families in our community. Please consider a donation

Description

Our True Living Program will form partnerships with other nonprofit organizations, and county agencies. True Passion’s goal is to foster a commitment to young adults that will promote interpersonal relationships, as well as reassert a sense of hope and value. It is through mentoring and education that the young adults within the Foster Care system can be set on a path of adulthood with the correct tools and again a sense of pride and accomplishment. True Living is a program that is needed in direct response to the aged out foster children residing within Alameda County. As these youths do not have the tools needed to go on to adulthood, True Passion’s goal is to identify the growing number of youths that are failing this transition and to help with accomplishing their goals by offering a positive support system and reinforcing that their goals and dreams can become a reality. True Living’s primary focus will be those aged 13-18; as these are the critical years for foster children and is an age group that has been deemed problematic. Our mentoring/tutoring program and services will pair a youth with a mentor for weekly planned activities, weekend tutoring services, guess speakers and educational field trips. Both mentors and tutors will be background screened and receive the training necessary to help our youths and young adults. Over time, True Living will create a wholesome learning environment that will be a valuable asset to the youths who we help, as well as to the community. You / We Can Make a Difference !

FYI: Letter sent in to our organization: I came out and volunteered with True Passion for your annual Giving Back to the Community Thanksgiving Dinner. It was a great and beautiful experience. Everything was very well organized, the community was able to come out and enjoy a free Thanksgiving meal, and some were even able to take meals, sodas, and desserts home. It was a geat experience".
